My Cast

SA Bass - - News - Ben­nie Wiese / Editor

Un­be­liev­able! There are only a cou­ple of months left un­til the end of the year. For me work­ing at the mag­a­zine it’s even a big­ger eye opener, that 2017 is nearly over and look­ing at what we have ac­com­plished so far this year.

The se­cond FLW sea­son is in full swing with the se­cond Cast-for-Cash tour­na­ment in the se­ries al­ready done and dusted.

Many an­glers are en­joy­ing their pre­ferred sport as most of the fish­ing venues are now in spawn across the coun­try. At the same time, fish­ing serves as a ten­sion re­liever for work­ing so hard. It will help give an­glers ad­di­tional en­ergy to push through towards the end of the year.

There are peo­ple who like to con­nect in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties like run­ning marathons or play­ing sports, then there are those peo­ple who pre­fer some­thing to­tally op­po­site. These peo­ple find re­lax­ation and re­lief when they are in­doors and spend their life away in front of play sta­tions by play­ing video games, bak­ing or cook­ing. My sug­ges­tion to them is to do some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent than the usual, like camp­ing or fish­ing. Fish­ing is an ex­tremely re­lax­ing ac­tiv­ity and it can become your leisure pur­suit. This way you will meet peo­ple that you would never meet in­doors. An an­gler is for­ever around na­ture, the tran­quil­lity and peace­ful­ness of the en­vi­ron­ment helps him de-stress. You will find your­self us­ing all your senses in na­ture. Aside from that, fish­ing is be­lieved to have health ben­e­fits for the hu­man body too. You need to en­joy life, we only live once.

You might want to know what the ben­e­fits of a so­cial day’s fish­ing are. It is easy, there is no need to rush or no need to ex­haust your­self too much and drain your brain­power to fish. This means that the brain can just un­wind and re­lax for a few hours. You can sit back and en­joy the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment while re­leas­ing any stress you are suf­fer­ing from. Fish­ing does not have to have any time pres­sure or dead­lines un­like your usual daily busi­ness.

This month’s is­sue is once again full off con­tri­bu­tions from our highly ex­pe­ri­enced an­glers and shar­ing their fruit­ful knowl­edge to help you as an­gler on when, where and how to fish. This will help you to best use the last quar­ter of the year to your ad­van­tage.

Last but not least. Early in Oc­to­ber, South Africa is host­ing the Black Bass World Cham­pi­onship on the Vaal River and we look for­ward to see some top an­glers from across the world on our turf. We at SA BASS wish all teams all the very best and may the best team win!
